Patch birding is the best. You can get a real feel about trends and the movement of birds from the repeated study in one location.
And your own back yard can be your local patch! I've been enjoying the birds in our yard. Depending on the time of year, our yard attracts Painted and Indigo Buntings, Tufted Titmice, Great Crested Flycatchers, Eastern Phoebes, Common Ground and Mourning Doves, and more. A trio of Red-bellied Woodpeckers are regulars, loudly swooping in each time I refill the peanut feeders. Cardinals, chickadees, parulas, and gnatcatchers are also among our regular residents. Watching the antics and interactions of our feathered friends is a lot of fun.
This funny text slogan for birders likens patch birding to insanity. The full quote, shown here on a quarantine-appropriate adult beverage flask, reads:
Visiting the same spot
over and over
hoping to find new birds.
